NEW YORK, N.Y. - St. Louis Blues right-wing Chris Stewart is the NHL's first star of the week.

Stewart had six goals and an assist over four games to help the Blues remain in second place in the Central Division.

He opened the week by scoring twice, his first multi-goal game of the season, in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators last Monday.

He capped the week by recording three goals and an assist, including the game-winning goal, in a 6-0 triumph over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was named the second star with two goals and six assists in four appearances as the short-handed Penguins extended their winning streak to seven games.

Colorado centre Matt Duchene took third star honours with two goals and seven assists.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
